About a week ago, I got really sick of the beige color and char rail. Rather than removing the railing like we did in the family room, we decided to make the most of it and change it into the board and batten style.
We followed, you guessed it, a Young House Love tutorial. It’s call Board and Batten while they completed it for under sixty dollars, it costed us well over $300 (mainly due to the new saw horse and saw). In any case, it was well worth the money and we had the whole project wrapped up in about 3 days!
The top paint is Brainstorm Bronze. It is such a great color and changes based on the lighting. The bottom is ultra white, which is about as basic as a white that you can get.
After Matt cut down all the lattice boards to the right height, he nailed them to the walls so I could get going with the final coat of paint!
And how crazy that the room started like (1) this with the first owners, then (2) this when we moved in, and now (3) the current!
